Crystallography: The Cambridge Structural Database (CSD)
A big part of studying molecular structures is viewing them. The Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre (CCDC) maintains and curates the Cambridge Structural Database, where you can find data on and visualizations of crystal structures as well as active molecules like proteins.
The Cambridge Structural Database (CSD) itself is a collection of small molecule crystal structures contributed to by scientists all over the world. There are a number of tools you can access when you download the CSD package through UMaine that can provide further analysis and create 3-D visualizations of these structures. This is a list of the programs you can download onto your device, what they do, and links to more information about them:
